Shelley Vintage China Patterned called Summer Glory

This pretty little teacup saucer was given to me from my mom. She brought it all the way home from Alaska during a visit with her brother and his family.
The pattern is called Summer Glory.
What makes this dish extra special is that it was made by a pottery company called Shelley which is my mothers married name and my maiden name. My dads roots are German, not English, but it's neat to know it is the same name and the same spelling.

Raking, Running & Relaxin' with Keri and Raider

Spent a delightful weekend with dear little Keri

After two sweeps of the rake, Keri declared raking was "hard work" and she'd much rather make lovely bouquets of the dried Sedum I was tossing in the leaf pile.

Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow.
Benjamin Disraeli
To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
Clara Ortega
An older sister is a friend and defender - a listener, conspirator, a counsellor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too.

Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.

We may look old and wise to the outside world. But to each other,
we are still in junior school.

You keep your past by having sisters. As you get older, they're the only ones who don't get bored if you talk about your memories.
Deborah Moggach

It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.
Pam Brown
